"In future, we can expect more adoption of Edge DC owing to the exponential growth of IoT devices"
Data center growth in India: Even before the pandemic hit, India’s data center industry was witnessing a robust growth. COVID-19, however, was an inflection point for the sector, driving an exponential consumption of data, remote working, increased internet penetration. This in turn, resulted in an increased demand for bandwidth, storage capacities and cloud services. India’s emphasis to achieve self-reliance through data localisation are likely to fuel the demand for data center and cloud services.
Today, we are witnessing more investments into hyperscale Tier IV data centers and data center operators are now building parks instead of isolated buildings. Majority of Hyperscalers are already outsourcing their colocation requirements in India for rapid expansion. International cloud providers are also setting up their captive data centers by availing incentives and benefits by government policies.
At the same time, there will be equal demand for Edge data centers. Increasing use of compute-intensive technologies like IoT and AI has increased the need for faster network response to customers, in-turn driving the demand for edge data centres. Unlike the traditional approach which adopts a centralized approach and sends every bit of data to the cloud, Edge DCs keep the heaviest traffic and data close to end-user applications. In the future, we can expect more adoption of Edge DC owing to the exponential growth of IoT devices.
Security & Data center: Thanks to the pandemic, organizations, large and small deviated from the traditional workplace and adapted to work with a distributed workforce. There was an urgent need to scale up the IT infrastructure. Cloud services became critical to functioning of organizations, with employees requiring access to data and working remotely. The need for reliable and a secure IT infrastructure became of paramount importance. To address these concerns, we have strived to make quality technology services accessible to everyone. With Yotta Enterprise Cloud, we are doing the same. The services offered under Yotta Enterprise Cloud Services include – public, private, and federated cloud. The portfolio includes Compute as a Service, Storage as a Service, Disaster Recovery as a Service, Software as a Service, Backup and Recovery as a Service. Yotta also provides end-to-end consultancy and support for cloud migration, prioritisation of applications and workloads, and identifying infrastructure dependencies.
Readiness to meet the demand: At Yotta, we believe that hyper-innovation happens at the intersection of modern technology and an infinitely scalable business ecosystem. We conceptualise, design, engineer and operate hyper scale data center parks to support the quality and capacity requirements of companies rapidly moving towards digitisation. In terms of our company strategy, there are 3 pillars of growth, we will focus on:
Market segmentation: We offer services to both hyperscalers (Yotta Colo) and enterprises (Yotta Tech). Yotta Colo will provide wholescale colocation, with racks on demand, whereas our enterprise IT services will continue to offer bouquet of managed services: private cloud, public cloud, hybrid cloud, managed security, IT management, desktop as a service, managed security, storage, BCP/DR, colocation, and even GPUs. Investments: Given our parent company- Hiranandani Group’s vast experience over the past 35 years, Yotta Infrastructure has a competitive edge with strengths in the key pillars of the Data Centre business viz. ownership of land, world-class construction, timely completion of projects and in-house power supply capabilities. In October 2020, we committed a Rs.7000 crore investment to set-up a 20-acre hyperscale datacenter park in Noida. We have also recently announced our MoU with the West Bengal government, with an investment of Rs.8500 crore to set up logistics and hyperscale data center parks in the state. Our campuses across Chennai and Maharashtra will spread over 50 acres, offering 11 DC buildings with 60,000 racks.
